candidate who's under investigation by the fbi. >> the woman who threw the water is married to justin lamar sternad, a democrat who ran for congress in the august primary. he came in third place for the right to run against republican david rivera, who now appears to be in a heap of trouble. our now dried out reporter and a very dapper one, michael putny here to explain what this dousing incident was all about and who exactly is in trouble? >> well, i think we could start with congressman rivera. he certainly is in trouble. as well as justin lamar sternad who we are told now is singing to the top of his lungs to the fbi about how david rivera reportedly financed sternad's campaign. >> i'm sorry to bother you i'm michael putney with channel 10 -- >> and when mrs. sterned opened the door, i got drenched. so as you can see, we are all wet, and justin lamar sternad is not talking, if he is home. his wife threw the water on me. we do know however that mr. sternad is talking to the fbi. and sternad is reportedly saying that congressman david rivera secretly strategized and paid for the democrat's
wife threw the water on me. we do know however that mr. sternad is talking to the fbi. and he's saying that david rivera paid for the democrat's campaign. if true that would be conspiracy. >> he tries to figure out whether congressman david rivera is in trouble for the fbi, for this, too. he has already been under the investigation by the fbi, the irs, the miami-dade state attorneys office and the florida department of law enforcement over financial disclosure issues and allegations that he abused the powers of his office back when he was just a state legislature. now he is a member of congress and the investigation is into republican are getting way more interesting. something kind of weird happens in south florida when it came time for the democrats to pick somebody in their primary to run against congressman david riv a rivera. there was the candidate who everybody expected who had run against him in the past. that was this guy, joe garcia. but in addition, there was another candidate in the primary, and that was this guy. who reported almost no fund raising and who personally had
at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo. which were prompted of course by the video. >> there's a caveat there, she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that the libyan president said al qaeda was behind the attack. and days later, the president's spokesman, jay carney says this, it is, i think self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. well if it was self-evident. then why didn't the president come out and call this exactly what it was, an act of terror on the anniversary of 9/11? >> well this is an event of great interest obviously to the public, to the news media. informatio
the former candidate's wife. the situation of his candidacy is currently under investigation by the fbi. >>> finally, the endorsement neither candidate has been courting. venezuelan president hugo cha z chavez. he's had a rocky stint in office to say the least. in a tv appearance yesterday, chavez weighed in on the u.s. presidential race. quote, in the point of view of his politics, if i were voting, i would vote for obama, and i believe that if obama was from caracas, he would vote for chavez. i am positive. relations between the u.s. and venezuela have been tense in recent years. neither embassy has had an ambassador since 2010. chavez himself is in a tight race for re-election. i'm rooting against him. and voters in venezuela will cast their ballots this coming sunday. >>> up next, republicans have been looking for voter fraud. guess what? they've found it, in their own campaign. after making it difficult for democrats to vote, it's the republicans who are to blame for the biggest case of registration fraud in the country. and that's coming up in a minute. >>> you're watching "hardb
in benghazi that left four americans dead. it is now been 17 days since that attack. sources say fbi agents sent to investigate the murders still have not been able to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is on going. >> the romney campaign ramped up its criticism of the president's response to those attacks claiming the administration overstated the influence of an anti-islam youtube film in order to draw folk us away from security short falls. and the man behind the anti-islam film which sparked protests throughout the muslim world is under arrest this morning in california. 55-year-old is arrested. he is accused of violating his probation. as part of a probation de
in libya were, in fact, carried out by terrorists. >>> meantime, the fbi agents dispatched to the country to investigate, say, they can't get near the crime scene due to "near total lack of security." the question is, could the obama administration have done more to prevent the attacks? >>> at the united nations, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu calls iran a nuclear ticking time bomb and makes his case for aggressive action by showing what can best be described as one of those bombs from the cartoons. the questio
final answer will be available only once the fbi mpletes i inign. >>> spain is set to announce the 2013 budget today. expected to include deep public service cut yakz trying to off set one of the worst deficits in the euro zone. outrage over austerity measures touched off violent prosts in several couriesleentays acss ro s a ek at the markets as we get all up in your business this morning. karen cho is live in london. good morning. >> good morning. the key question for markets is when spain will request a formal bailout which puts a lot of pressure on today's ne conferce. get close look at the 2013 budget. what revenue and spending is going to look like? you mentioned froests on the streets. this tells you how difficult it at home for the prime minister to push through further austerity. there will be more austerity and more o tab tay th sshrime minister tries to push the measure that these are homespun, homegrown reforms rather than ones pressured about it euro zone. in terms of what to expect should be a new tax oversight body. we'l hear news about that limitations onartint wese t ac
's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. putting together the best information we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. >> p.j., did she say too much there? >> i mean, those were evidently some talking points that had come out of the intelligence community. i think today the tilt is more towards this was planned attack. there had been some milling around near the embassy -- near the consulate beforehand. we obviously know more today than we did and have a greater perspective today now that we have people back, interviewing them and multiple investigations going on as susan rice said. but, you know, we still don't have the definitive view on what exactly happened and what we should do about it. >> i want to open this up to our panel here. in terms of how this plays out on the campaign trail, the general thinking is foreign policy isn't going to be an issue at t
.c.o.r.n. states were not talking but they should be talking to the fbi. >> congress voted to defund a.c.o.r.n. and that organization folded. so i want to know where the right wing outrage is now. we reported last week that the republican national committee fired a group it paid to register voters in swing states. because of suspicious voter registration forms. the man behind the group, nathan sprool's groups have been accused of suspicious voter activity in the past. today the investigation is growing. now ten -- ten florida counties have reported possibly fraudulent voter forms submitted by sprool's workers. they include registration with phony addresses and similar looking signatures and this potential voter fraud goes beyond florida. north carolina is is considering an investigation into the consulting firm. and a woman registering only republican voters worked for sprool's group in colorado. check out what she said. >> would you vote for romney or obama. >> wait, i thought you were registering voters a minute ago. >> i am. >> who are you registering? all voters? >> i'm actually tr
intimidated can call their nearest fbi office because it is a federal offense to harass someone think about all the people that worked so hard and struggled and went to prison and put their life on the line for the right to vote. >> nor -- >> you know, we weren't born yesterday. we know what's happening here. >> no question about it. i want you to replay, did wrn -- someone out registering voters for one party, what do you think of that. >> that's against the law. i used to go out with my registration forms. you say would you like to register? you don't know if they're going to register democratic republican, independent or any other party. and you're told it's against the law. we need some enforcement, visible enforcement. i hope people understand that if you are trying to intimidate a voter, that's against the law. that's unpatriotic. you need to fop because -- in 24 states, ed, on election day at the polls, did you know that 24 states allow a voter tole challenges on no reason -- >> just to disenfranchise people. >> and just say i believe that person has no right to vote and if the perso
happened in benghazi, the fbi can't get within 400 miles there to examine the evidence which is already being destroyed, so it's going to be hard to make a case. what about this letter that you have sent asking for answers about what went wrong in benghazi? >> well i have the letter here with me. i could show it to you. i wouldn't change anything. let me be crystal clear as chairman of that committee, and i hope this gets out to other people who are listening about this. >> and i should point out i've got the letter here too. we've gone through it. >> republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, admin strative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department that are part of their already existing investigation. this is not a challenge. it is nothing new. it is not something out of the ordinary. and i agreed to do it as a matter of bipartisanship because we thought these were important questions that people ought to be examining. >> but aren't you concerne
in fbi agents to investigate because they say benghazi is unstable. if that's the case, then where was the security before the attack? >> there are a lot of republican complaints in terms of liberal bias about this media campaign. some more credible than others. the president has mostly been covered as a candidate rather than as an incumbent whose record needs to be scrutinized. this is an area where there are questions, dealing with security overseas and also what are our goals in libya and are they being achieved in the right way? that line of argument and attack with press scrutiny and mitt romney making the case should be part of the debate. and i think will be because this story does have a lot of unanswered questions. >> mika, as we've been saying for some time both on and off the air, if the president was george w. bush and he had said that the middle east going up in flames was a, quote, bump in the road, george w. bush would have been absolutely skewered by the press. >> at the same time, is it fair to say that the romney campaign and mitt romney himself have seized upon t
. that was because authorities say it was stolen more than 60 years ago. the fbi is trying to find out who pilfered that piece. >>> and the pet cemetery in a new york city suburb has become the first animal burial ground to be listed on the national register of historic places. the hartsdale cemetery is being recognized for its architect and social history. those are your top five headlines. >>> president obama and mitt romney will finally be facing each other in an arena that has seen some of the best and worst performances from our presidential candidates and their running mates. >> there is no soviet domination of eastern europe and there never will be under a ford administration. >> there you go again. are you better off than you were four years ago? >> senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> who am i? why am i here? >> that last one went on to "snl" infamy. joining me is nbc news historian and author michael, in the eyes of the voters what is it that wins the debate? is it one great line some of which we just played or a steady argument for your positions? >> a great line can help. for instance, a
-- >> this benghazi story by the way is a huge story. right now dee dee myers the fbi won't even go into benghazi because it is so dangerous which leads you to wonder why they didn't listen to warnings before the attack and before our u.s. ambassador was killed. this is one of those issues and i think charles krauthammer said it perfectly today in "the washington post" that if mitt romney actually knew how to put forth an argument. >> right. >> he could really be grabbing attention. >> one of the problems was he jumped out ahead of this and politicized it in the hours immediately after the attack which discredited him in the media term as a spokesman for the other side. >> it was -- krauthammer said he could have done it so much better. >> and established himself as an alternative voice. he didn't do that and hasn't been able to do that. as a press secretary it is a very uncomfortable position. >> you get elements of al qaeda, you get leon panetta saying it's not al qaeda. this is an absolute mess. and it shows real negligence on the administration's part. >> joe, listen. this also tells you a lo
